AWENDAW, S.C. – Sophomore Cooper Musselman shined for the Kentucky men’s golf team on the last day of the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate, finishing with a 1-under, 71 for his final round. Overall, the Wildcats finished in 11th place with a 19-over, 883.
What Coach Brian Craig is Saying:
“We did not have our best week by any means, but there were many things learned that will help us as we start our postseason journey. We need to get better at the little things, the basic up and downs, to putting from 30 to 40 feet, and making the right decisions on the course. I believe in this team, we will keep working to get better and striving to make the Big Blue Nation proud.”
